Kiesha Miles is in the spotlight as a producer and former member of the hit R&B group ‘Xscape,’ and doesn’t take the role lightly. The singer and visionary recently gave fans a snippet of her life as a pregnant woman in Wetv’s ‘Pregnant and Dating’ docu-series. Although encouraged by her mom to marry the father of her child, Kiesha decided to remain single and search for love instead, hoping that her experience will give single moms hope. “I think it will be great for single women who had been through this to see that they’re not alone and not the only ones experiencing it,” said the artist during and interview with Access Atlanta. Kiesha recently sat down with OK! magazine to talk about her experience on ‘Pregnant and Dating.’ Check out what the R&B singer had to say.

How she became involved with the show.

“Actually, I’m back and forth between Atlanta and L.A. a lot because my family’s in Atlanta, so I found out I was pregnant when I came back to Atlanta. A friend that had heard about the show called me and asked if I would like something like that and I was like, ‘I don’t’ know because pregnancies are very, very tough on me.’ I’ve lost my last two babies. Then I thought about it and thought it would be a great experience, so why not?”

Taping while pregnant.

“We started taping maybe about three and a half months in, but I didn’t show until I was 6 months. The only thing that showed on me was my boobs.  My boobs grew two cup sizes within the first two months. So it was hilarious. But we started taping maybe three and a half months into my pregnancy and we went all the way up until about the eight months when I had him.”

Dating while pregnant, and what she was looking for in a partner.

“My pregnancy was a secret and I wasn’t showing. I could go on dates without telling anybody. I had refused to reveal it immediately. I just didn’t feel like everybody deserves to know my business. There were some different reactions to saying I was pregnant. Some great, some not so great. I think for me, rejection is something that I’m so afraid of, so the hardest part about saying it for me was feeling like I was going to be rejected.

What I wasn’t looking for was a replacement dad, and I made that clear from the beginning. I wasn’t looking for a baby daddy—that wasn’t the goal. I just wanted somebody to care about me, and if they became a bigger situation, to make sure it was a great man to be around my son. Before I was pregnant, the kind of guy that I liked was a different type of guy. I liked a guy that could show me a good time, could party a little bit, but now, with a son, I want somebody that is more about being responsible and really, really showing me love and not just a good time.”

‘Pregnant and Dating’ vs. ’16 & Pregnant.’

“Well my mom’s teen pregnancy, she’s told me all about it. It was so hard on her because even though a lot of teens were pregnant back in that day, it was frowned upon. It wasn’t a great thing. It wasn’t a great experience. But TV didn’t prepare me for what I went through in my pregnancy. I really hope that this show will show a different side of what you experience when you are pregnant. There are so many single women that are pregnant. You never really see that, how it feels. You never really see what you go through as a single lady being pregnant, and I really hope that this show will change that.”

  1. first off thanks keisha for sharing the miscarriage story that was uplifiting being a woman who has lost two babies during pregnancy i appreciate her sharing her story gives me hope:)..Secondly i personally don’t think anything is wrong with the show it’s funny how people can be so judgemental …what about all the homosexual based shows or these shows with black women fighting all the time? Im just saying half the shows on now are immoral so why is this such a big deal.

  2. There’s nothing to be said really, Wetv should of never even put this into their thought process. Horrible!

  3. Its like a car wreck…you shouldn’t look but you do…so I did. I looked at the website, it’s actually five women, both Black and white with one lady’s race I couldn’t tell. All five need their head examined.

    Lots of women find themselves pregnant without a mate but to do this on television, for what fame? Are they forgetting that their future children will grow up and see this rubbish on the internet? They are shameless.

    I wonder if there is some legal way for the bebe’s dads to stop them? Probably not since the bebe’s are still inside of them.

      • No Ms. Sherley, I can’t watch foolishness like that. I went to the website that showed a photo of the five ladies. To actually watch something like that would be murdering my poor brain cells.

  4. This show is just…smh. It is just wrong for her to say she goes on dates w/ these men & dont feel the need to tell them shes pregnant. What if those men were to catch feelings, but dont want to play baby daddy? Nothing wrong w/ a single mother dating, but why not wait till you push the kid out? You should be spending those months preparing for your child, not finding some man. The show should be about repairing relationships between the parents, or at least working on coparenting. Not some dating while pregnant, hope I can find a baby daddy bs

      • It means I’m sitting here wide eyed over the idea of this type of show & her backwards comments. O_o <—–means side eye, which she also deserves.

        • Did you make up the expression yourself? I think I’ll try my hand at making up my own expressions and see what I can come up with.

  5. She must have joined Xscape after Tiny and Kandi left because I don’t remember her. Anyway I have anything to say on the whole dating and pregnant thing….good luck and congrats!

  6. With two previous pregnancies, Miles obviously knows where babies come from so I’m not understanding the logic of her getting pregnant for someone that she had no intention of marrying and actively searching for a mate (but not a baby daddy WTH?) while pregnant with her son.

    As a young woman I’m disappointed in her actions, they just don’t seem logical (or sane). In all fairness we need to treat this reality show with the same distain we had for Shawty Lo’s.

    While no relationship is perfect or offers “together forever guarantees”, her son deserved for his mum to give the relationship with his dad a real fighting chance before moving on to other relationship possibilities.

    Children deserve better than this “anything for a buck” reality program nutters.
